This section deals with road construction signs. The high intensity and diamond grade signs meet State DOT and Federal MUTCD guidelines along with the new federal retroreflectivity requirements for black on orange signs. Reflective .080" rustproof aluminum orange construction signs. High quality, long lasting, and trouble free. Beware of the cheaper brands that fade in direct sunlight after 2 years of use. Click the pictures below for detailed descriptions and quantity discounts starting at five signs. If you don't see the sign you're looking for, consider designing your own in custom signs.
What is engineer grade reflective aluminum construction signs? These signs will reflect at night when light hits it, the lettering and background is reflective. Signs are .080 inch thick flat aluminum with engineer grade reflective sheeting applied over the surface. Signs will never rust and normally have an average life span of 7 years. High quality materials result in longer lasting signs and excellent resistance to fading. Meets ASTM D4956 type I specification.
What is high intensity prismatic reflective construction signs? These signs will reflect at night when light hits it by using encapsulated lens material which offers better reflectivity compared to standard engineer grade reflective signs. These signs are 10 times more reflective then engineer grade and last longer. High intensity traffic signs are .080 inch thick flat aluminum with high intensity reflective sheeting applied over the surface. Signs will never rust and have an average life span of 10 years. High quality materials result in longer lasting signs and superior resistance to fading. Signs meet most State and Federal D.O.T. specifications, type III prismatic reflective. Meets the new federal retroreflectivity requirements for black on orange construction signs.
What about diamond grade prismatic reflective signs? Diamond grade is distinguished by the diamond shaped lattice separating the sheeting layers, and a "coarse" grain to the micro prisms. This sheeting is about 10 times brighter than engineer grade at shallow viewing angles. Signs exceed most State and Federal D.O.T. specifications, type XI prismatic reflective. Meets the new federal retroreflectivity requirements for black on orange construction signs.
Additional Information Comes with standard mounting holes centered top and bottom for easy installations. They accept 5/16" bolts and nuts and a standard length to use is 2 1/2" which may be purchased in our hardware section. Typically installed on U-Channel or square posts which may be purchased in our posts category. You should always refer to your local DOT guidelines and city requirements when installing traffic control devices. Please refer to the MUTCD which gives examples of how high the construction signs should be. Beware of any signs thinner then .080", (.040 or .063) can be easily bent by vandals.
